A well-known, commercial English ale yeast of which we can not mention here (rumor has it that it is Whitbread), selected for its fast fermentation character and its ability to form a very compact sediment at the end of the fermentation, helping to improve beer clarity. This yeast is recommended for the production of a large range of ale beers where big flavor is desired. Used in test batches here we were pleased with the clean flavor. Recommended temperature range: 64F-72F
Yeast (Dry) - Safale US-05 (11.5 g)
Formally US-56, US-05 is a strain of yeast that creates that classic American profile of clean malt, crisp taste, low diacetyl, and ability to ferment in a wide range of temps. Look for US-05 to be the next popular dried yeast.
This is marked as directly pitchable yeast and there are no rehydration instructions.
Some instructions for rehydrating yeasts: Suspend yeast in 4 oz of warm water. Do not stir. Let stand for 15 minutes. Stir gently. Add an equal amount of wort to your solution. Cover, let sit for five minutes, and pitch.
